 SMYRNA, Del.- A juvenile suspect has been arrested after police discover fingerprints at the scene of a reported burglary.

Smyrna Police said the teen, who is not being identified, broke into a person's home in the 300 block of Paul Drive while the homeowner was taking a walk around 8 a.m. July 21, 2014.

Police said the teen got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officers recovered fingerprints that were later matched by the State Bureau of Identifications using Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS).

The suspect was arrested on Burglary 2nd Degree and Theft charges and committed to a detention center in default of $6,000.00 secured bail.

Investigators have identified two other possible accomplices who may be linked to this crime as well as two other residential burglaries in the area.
